I recommend Pegasus high school to students that have had a hard time in going to classes and are behind on credits. I attended pegasus h.s in late 2008 and 2009, the teachers at the time played a big role in helping me graduate. I started my senior year with 85 credits! But they never gave up on me and helped me to keep myself motivated. I am very grateful for the teachers in this school and the care they give to each of their students!
